"Anna Lisa" as written by and Levine/mccollum....
Is it really over
Seems that we've grown older
And time has beat us
Seems I've forgotten who to be
You took the better part of me
My heart, my soul, my sweetest memories
You're my identity

Boxes line our hallway
Where laughter used to be
Empty house surrounds me
And echos our history
I wrack my brain
To find a way
To bring us back to yesterday
My love, my life, my childhood fantasy
Still everything to me
My Anna-Lisa

Looking out this window
Almost seeing
You pull in the driveway
And kiss me so casually
If I knew then
What I know now
I would have changed your mind somehow
My hopes, my dreams, my future family
That's what you took from me
My Anna-Lisa

    General CommentThis could be about a break-up, but the more depressing is that his girlfriend, Anna-Lisa, killed herself.

    At first, he sounds almost angry, but it's a very sad angry. He says that this girl was basically his life and without her, he's lost and doesn't know what to do.

    "Boxes line our hallway" works with both scenarios. Either the girl is moving out or all her stuff is being taken to relatives and the like. He wants to go back to when they were still together/she was still alive ("I wrack my mind to find a way to bring us back to yesterday").

    It was the end that mostly cinched (I didn't spell that right, did I? xD) the suicide thing for me. "I would have changed your mind somehow" seems more appropriate to someone killing themselves than breaking up, though they could both apply.

    I looooove this song. *Less-than-three*
